That total would have won in any of the other classes.

Pikesville coach Adam Hittner rolled the dice in the final minutes of the Class 1A indoor track state title meet last month. He told Morgan Jones to skip the 1,600-meter relay - the meet's final running event - and just participate in the pole vault, which took place around the same time. The move paid off as she finished second in the pole vault, and Pikesville still won the relay to edge out Manchester Valley by four points and capture the state championship. “It was a gamble either way, but one we were prepared to take, and having more talented and prepared athletes around certainly helps your confidence as a coach,” Hittner said.

Two Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association state championship finals will have new addresses this spring. Ned Sparks, the executive director of the MPSSAA, said the outdoor track and field championships are being moved from UMBC to Morgan State, and that all but an official agreement is in place to move the state softball finals from Randazzo Park in Severn to the University of Maryland in College Park. Sparks said the MPSSAA decided to move the track and field championship meets to take advantage of Morgan State's vaunted track facilities.

Maryland made it official today, confirming that seven athletic teams will be discontinued. Men's outdoor track and field will remain, although the sport will need to reach financial benchmarks down the road in order to remain viable. The eliminated sports are: men's tennis; men's indoor track and field and cross country; men's and women's swimming and diving; women's water polo; and women's acrobatics and tumbling. Some reflections: ** I can't help but think of how members of the Maryland men's and women's track and field teams sat in a semicircle between the starting line and high-jump pit on a November day and were told by athletic director Kevin Anderson that the men's program was being recommended for elimination.

Tears did to Chelsey Barrett what few opponents have been able to do: stop her from scoring more points. Barrett, a senior guard for Atholton's girls basketball team, scored her 1,000th career point in a four-point overtime loss to Mount Hebron Monday night. Barrett, who registered nine points against the Vikings, reached the achievement on her final point, the first of two free throws with 1:52 left in the fourth quarter. The game was briefly delayed as Barrett was given a plaque, the game ball and a bouquet of roses.

A day will come when Matt Robinson will look back on his sophomore year in high school and smile. In the fall, he enjoyed his first season of varsity football, becoming a starter at safety and also seeing time at wide receiver to help the Raiders reach the regional playoffs. From there, Robinson, 6 feet 3, worked his way into the starting lineup of the basketball team as a forward. He averaged 7.5 points and nearly five rebounds a game, providing solid defense and hustle as the Raiders reached the county championship game and finished the season 18-6.

Westminster senior Deryk Kern made the most of his opportunity as the Owls' new starting quarterback last fall, passing his way to several records. Catholic junior Ellie Gonzalez came into the school year as an established distance runner who then decidedly separated herself from the rest of the pack. On Wednesday, Kern and Gonzalez added to their lengthy list of athletic accomplishments this year by being named The Baltimore Sun's Male and Female Athletes of the Year at the 47th annual awards luncheon at the newspaper's downtown headquarters.

McDonogh did it again. The Eagles swept the boys and girls titles at the private school championship meet indoors, and they pulled off the same feat again Saturday. McDonogh's boys took the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association crown while the top-ranked girls won the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland championship in the title meet at Archbishop Spalding. "We've never swept outdoors before," McDonogh coach Jeff Sanborn said. "The kids were committed following the victories indoors … to getting victories again outdoors.

Ellie Gonzalez Catholic, junior After earning the Runner of the Year award for cross country last fall, Gonzalez remained the area's top distance runner in indoor track this winter. The junior swept both the 1,600 and 3,200 again in the IAAM championship meet last month -- and did so with amazing ease -- proving she has grown into a truly dominant runner who is in a class of her own. Gonzalez captured the 1,600 in 4:56.04, good enough to win by about 24 seconds, but she put on an even more impressive performance in the 3,200.

The times are changing in track and field. In previous years, it was common to see teams bring only a handful of athletes to big meets and perform well -- sometimes even win. Coaches would routinely put their best athletes into four events and hope for as many points as possible. That concept, however, has changed recently. The event limit for an individual athlete remains four, and some coaches still use that tactic. But it isn't done as often as it was about 10 years ago because track and field has become more popular.

The Maryland men's outdoor track and field team will be able to operate at least until the school enters the Big Ten in July 2014, Maryland athletic director Kevin Anderson said in a news release Tuesday. Maryland said the $888,000 raised via private funds months ago, will be enough to preserve the sport for two more seasons. After that, Maryland is expected to reap a financial windfall from shared conference television revenue and could be in position to restore a number of sports that were dropped last July.

During the winter of her freshman year, Liberty's Brittany Arndt looked for a way to stay in shape until lacrosse started in the spring. She just couldn't decide on the right path. A few of Arndt's friends surprised her with the suggestion that she should try indoor track. She didn't know a whole lot about the sport, but it seemed like a good idea. Arndt would be able to do plenty of running that would prepare her for lacrosse season. The decision proved to be a smart one. Arndt quickly realized indoor track helped her in many ways, and she really liked it. Now a senior in her fourth year running during the winter, Arndt is glad she took up the sport.

A task force charged with evaluating Towson athletic director Mike Waddell's recommendation to cut baseball and men's soccer has yet to forward its findings to the university president's office. Part of the delay has to do with their revised understanding of Towson's Title IX situation, which was one of the reasons Waddell gave for wanting to eliminating 60 roster spots for male athletes. He has insisted the school needs to try to achieve athlete proportionality -- meaning the percentage of women athletes is about equal to the percentage of women enrolled at the school -- and that cutting sports was therefore necessary.
